My husband and I are on baby number 2 and are expecting any day now! We aren't finding out the sex, so two names are needed. My sons name is Cohen Michael and I really like that it's a bit different without being too out there. I want something that flows well with his name. Our girl choice is Harper (at least that's what my husband hasn't vetoed). Our last name is French...Pombier. My husband and I just cannot agree on a boys name and need some help!!
Names I like are Cooper, Kellan, Landon. A bit all over the place I know. I do like the Irish/Gaelic feel. He has said no to all of these. He likes Milo, Max, Finn, Noah, and Miles. I'm not a fan of these. We are clueless at this point and I'm due 2/23/11!!
Im sure you get tons of emails but would really appreciate the help. Thanks!
Finn seems like a good place to start, since it's on your husband's list and you like Irish/Gaelic names. Would you like it better if it was Finlay? Phinneas? Griffin? Finnegan? Finlan? Finian? Quinlan?
Kellan seems a little too close to Cohen: same starting sound, same ending sound, and soft middle sounds. Something like Keegan might work better: the beginning and ending sounds are still the same, but the strong G sound helps make them sound more different from each other.
Milo and Miles make me think of Malcolm and Niall and Lyle.
Milo and Landon make me think of Leo and Lyle.
Noah makes me think of Ezra, which I think has Cohen's flavor of "a bit different but not too out there."
Cooper makes me think of Hooper, Carson, and Carter. Cohen and Carson are pretty similar (like Cohen and Keegan: sort of right on the line), but I think Cohen and Carter works.

Thank you all very much for the responses. I had no idea I would get so much help. Sorry it took so long to get back with you. I've been a little busy :)
